Jan Pettersen's scheduled visit to Sri Lanka today has been postponed indefinitely, reports Norsk Riks Kringkasting (NRK).

Cancellation comes as the UN Security Council is preparing to debate Iraqi-crisis during this week.

In the meantime, the spokesperson for SLMM, Teitur Torkelsson, said that the yesterday's sinking of the LTTE ship is a serious incident. However, he hopes that the parties would remain committed to the peace process, reports NRK.
